Filofax Swap-Out Experiment

Hi everyone!

This post is about a daring  (to me at least) experiment that I've been mulling over, and I thought I'd give it a try.  Vanjilla and a few others have had success with this so I figured I'd join in and give it a go.

I've been a good girl!  I haven't bought a Filofax since July (yes, July!!) when I bought the Compact Chameleon.  Of course I've been lusting after several filofaxes since then, but haven't bought any, and it's because I have a few that are sitting in storage, lonely, cold, but not alone. (:  I really hate having stuff I don't actually use.  So, this is a shout-out to anybody out there with lonely and unused Filos of their own.

How about we swap Filofaxes ?!?  I listed below the ones I'm not currently using, and willing to let go of.  I will describe the condition of each one so that you have an idea of what you're getting.  I take care of my stuff and store them well, so most of these are in really great condition.  Of course, I can detail their condition if you need me to.  And oh, it'll be cheaper to ship them empty, and I know you all have your fair share of inserts, so just let me know if you want any inserts and I'll see if I have them.

Here goes.  (No Baroques though, sorry.)


Red Balmoral.  Great condition, some inserts cause these are harder to come by.

1  Ochre Malden.  Used a few weeks.
2  Black Portobello.  The strap on the Portobello is really long so the mini can be stuffed to the gills and still close.  (I've actually been on the hunt for a Personal-size hoping the strap will be the same, LOL)

1  Brown Amazona, brand new and unused.
2  Brown Slimline Balmoral
3  Vintage Pink Malden (in exchange for the Ochre, hopefully, to match my beloved Personal Ochre)

Lavender Cross/Classic. No peeling, great condition.  (I loved the Pink Classic so I thought I'd get another one but I just never use it.)


Now, to help you out a little bit, let me enumerate my wishlist.  I will, however, definitely look beyond this list.

Pocket Ochre Malden
Compact Ochre Malden
Personal Brown Holborn
Personal Brown Portland
Personal Chameleon or Finchley in blue (the one color missing from my Filofax collection)


Just as a side-note:  I have more than enough pinks so would prefer to stray from those colors, hence the proliferation of browns in my wishlist.  (:


Multi-swaps are welcome as well, just let me know.  You may email me at the address is in the Contacts page.

Let the swaps begin . . . Thanks for visiting!

  1. Hi Doris,

    lovely idea! I was thinking about somehting similar, since buying from FF all the time can be so hard on your budget!
    I'm interested in your mini Ochre and brown pocket Amazona. however don't have anything available on your wishlist (the portland and I are not ready to part, yet...)So do you also sell?
